Omaha Drug Charges Lawyer in Nebraska

Lancaster County Drug Arrest Possession Defense Lawyer

Attorney for Drug Arrests Along I-80 Corridor in Nebraska

Nebraska drug laws are among the most stringent in the United States. Minimal possession of certain substances can lead to incarceration, and dealing drugs can bring years of imprisonment, even for a first offense.

With its proximity to legalized marijuana in Colorado, Nebraska is now a pipeline for the transportation of legally purchased cannabis moving east. Interstate 80 traffic stops frequently turn up massive hauls of narcotics, including in vehicles driven by out-of-state residents

If you were arrested for a drug offense, it is critical you entrust your case to a skilled criminal defense lawyer who gets results. Olsen Law Offices, P.C., L.L.O. Attorney Tom Olsen is a Former Assistant State Attorney General and Assistant Omaha City Prosecutor. That means he knows the best solution to every conceivable situation and what it takes to achieve a favorable outcome, as evidenced by the thousands of clients he has successfully defended during his three decades of trial experience.

Drug Crimes in Nebraska

Like every state, drug conviction penalties are determined by how much of an illegal substance an individual is caught with at the time of their arrest. This includes drugs like:

  • Marijuana and synthetic cannabinoids (K2, Spice);
  • Cocaine, including powder and crack;
  • Heroin;
  • Methamphetamine;
  • LSD and psilocybin (magic mushrooms);
  • MDMA (Ecstacy);
  • Ketamine; and
  • Prescription medications, including opioids.

Penalties for simple possession can range anywhere from a citation and $300 fine for marijuana to as many as two years in prison and a $10,000 fine for hard drugs and opiates. Those convicted of drug possession with intent to distribute, drug trafficking, or drug manufacturing can face decades in prison, all the way up to life for repeat offenders or exceptionally large amounts of seized drugs.

Regardless of the circumstances of your case, and whether you face state or federal charges, Olsen Law Offices, P.C., L.L.O. and Attorney Tom Olsen will tenaciously fight to keep a conviction off your record. We will conduct a full investigation to determine the best course of action so your rights and future are protected. 

Drug Charge Defense Strategies

Attorney Tom Olsen has served clients throughout the U.S., and his vast knowledge of the legal system is invaluable to individuals facing serious drug allegations. Many clients are victims of law enforcement whose overzealous actions represent an infringement of rights. This includes instances of illegal search and seizure following a traffic stop on subjective suspicions and a subsequent drug dog search. Out-of-state drivers are increasingly targeted, often for simply driving a rental car or the most minor of traffic offenses.

To achieve the best possible result in your case, place your trust in Attorney Olsen, and his extensive experience in holding police accountable for unlawful traffic stops and searches. He will fight for reduced or dismissed charges, or a second-chance opportunity as part of the National Safety Council, Nebraska Diversion Program.
